The Olympus 35RC is a 35 mm rangefinder camera manufactured by Olympus in Japan in the 1970s. It claimed to be the smallest 35 mm rangefinder with automatic exposure control and manual override. Its viewfinder readouts for selected aperture/shutter speed settings are unique for a compact camera.
The Olympus 35RC provides a super-sharp 42mm f/2.8 lens, precise manual rangefinder focus, and amazingly accurate shutter-preferred automatic and manual exposures.

The original battery PX625 (1.35V mercury cell) is no longer available, as it is prohibited.
The Replacement is a WeinCell MRB625 1.35V Battery.
Or  for example a Vatra V625U (1.5V). With this, the exposure must be corrected by approx. 1EV (half ISO Stop).
The Film test was shot with a 1.5V battery and no exposure correction. This also works very well.

Please take a close look at the pictures.
